Angela Wagner said the family was provided copies of the search warrants, along with a list of items seized. But she said there was nothing on the warrant to indicate why authorities wanted to search a 71-acre farm in Peebles they had recently sold. Nor was there any indication why they wanted to look through a semi-tractor trailer loaded with their household items, she said. And she said it remains unclear why her in-law’s 2,000-acre farm in Pike County was raided or why the Franklin County SWAT team was called to assist in that search.
